. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Hitting his sixth homer over a stretch of three consecutive games, Mike Schmidt tied a major league record as the Phillies defeated the Pirates, 5-1. Schmidt hit his round-tripper in the fourth inning. Jim Kaat hurled the route for the Phils, doled out six hits and also drove in two runs with a double in the sixth. [The Sporting News]
